Elizabeth Stone shares the strategies she used to transform her recent Zoom class into one of the most gratifying teaching experiences she'd ever had

. Our view on Elizabeth's article

This is a wonderful article by an inspiring caring academic who is clearly making a big effort to give her students an engaging learning experience despite Zoom. Really good practical tips and innovations. This is my favourite part, a good lesson to us all in business too:

'Take notes on what they tell you about themselves. During our chat, I jotted down what they said about their majors, hobbies, pets, hometowns or countries of origin, and when the actual class began, I alluded to that information when I could. I hoped it would make them feel recognized and would help others to know them, as well.'

When I look back, the lecturers and teachers I valued the most were those who seemed to care about me, and my learning and recoginsed me. Great job, Professor Stone and thank you.
